Why does the government hate innovation?

 "One of the things which constantly flummoxes me is why some people in government see something new, and immediately want new rules set up. I’ve written before on California’s war on private business, but this isn’t something exclusive to The Golden State. It seems like groups just freak out when an innovation like Airbnb, Uber and Lyft, e-cigarettes, and 3D printers comes along to threaten the status quo. It seems like most of the outrage is from people worried about seeing their own power disappear, while others claim to be worried about “public safety.”"
